PSN shooter has funny name, scrolls sideways

With a name like Soldner-X: Himmelsstürmer, it's got to be German. If there was any further doubt, the droning synth and drum machine soundtrack settles it.

Yep, this PSN shooter, complete with Ye Olde School side-scrolling and – as the trailer boldly promises – the ability to "upgrade your weapons" (how novel) is from the land of Nietzsche. Fortunately, this re-imagination of the 2007 PC game has been updated with new graphics, runs at 1080p, and actually looks pretty fun. Should development continue unabated, the game will have you himmelsstürmering all the way to the PlayStation Store in Oktober.
